Calculate the time it takes a train to make a 48 km trip in the following two situations. Assume that at each station the train accelerates at a rate of 2.0 m/s2 until it reaches 50 km/h, then stays at this speed until its brakes are applied for arrival at the next station, at which time it decelerates at -3.0 m/s2. Assume it stops at each intermediate station for 20 s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) The stations at which the trains must stop are 0.60 km apart.

I'm confused...
